Making simple edits and maintaining a WordPress website isn’t as hard as it might seem. You just need to know what features matter to you and how to use them. That’s why mastering your WordPress dashboard is so important.

While building a website for yourself or for clients, you may use different WordPress plugins, custom post types or WordPress page builders. Many of these tools will add their own menu items in the WordPress admin bar, create custom widgets in the admin dashboard, and add links in the toolbar. The end result looks a bit messy. For someone who has never used WordPress, these additional items make the dashboard look more complicated than it actually is.

The admin area of WordPress is sometimes referred to the back end of your website and it’s where you can configure the settings of WordPress, install themes and plugins, publish content and more. Any WordPress plugins or add-ons that are active on your website will also more than likely live in the admin area. Some themes can also modify the WordPress admin area in the same way, as well as adding custom controls or panels to the dashboard.

The dashboard is the homepage of your website’s admin area and where you will typically be directed to after logging into your site. From the dashboard screen, you can get a quick overview of your website, including the number of posts and pages published, recent activity on your site from logged-in users, and some links to help you find the most used features of WordPress. You can also view the latest developments from the WordPress community through the WordPress News panel.

The dashboard area can also be customized. The Screen Options button allows you to control which panels or boxes are displayed. Many pages within the WordPress admin area include this screen options panel, allowing you to hide and show panels as necessary. If you can’t find a particular panel or box, remember to check the screen options settings to adjust what is and isn’t visible.

The panels or boxes on the dashboard and other pages of the admin area can often be dragged and dropped into place. They can also be minimized or maximized by clicking on the appropriate icon. This gives you another option for controlling the appearance and layouts of the WordPress admin screens.

The sidebar menu contains links to all the features and settings pages of your WordPress website. The menu can be several levels deep, with fly-out menus used to display further items. As you add more functionality to your website, usually via plugins, themes, and custom developments, the menu will start to grow and grow, in both length and depth.

It’s worth remembering that the sidebar menu can be collapsed and expanded as needed. Collapsing the menu partially hides it, with just the menu icons on display. This can be handy when working on smaller screened devices when screen real estate is at a premium. If you ever log into your WordPress admin area and can’t see the full menu, try clicking on the expand and collapse icon at the foot of the menu.

Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of the WordPress admin area. Logging into the back of your website doesn’t have to be a daunting experience. Despite first impressions, WordPress can become very easy to use, especially when you consider all the features and power at your disposal, not to mention all the great third-party plugins and themes available for the software.

The Journey is what everyday entrepreneurs, like you, need to follow in the pursuit of online success. Our experienced GoDaddy Guides are here to take you through all the steps, both big and small, that you encounter every day.
